Dr. Robert Strobel is a prolific composer, musician, and educator. He holds a doctoral degree in Composition from Florida State University, in addition to degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia (MM Composition) and the University of Northern Colorado (MM Oboe Performance, BM Composition and Oboe Performance).

Recently, Dr. Strobel was accepted for a residency at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts. In 2018, he won 3rd place in the Bruno Maderna International Composers Competition. That year, he was also at a workshop at the American Music Festival, and his music was played at the Electroacoustic Mini Fest, Aspen Composers' Conference, Art Song Lab, the Electroacoustic Barn Dance and the SCI National Conference. In 2017, his works were played or performed at the Source Song Festival, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, the New Music Festival and University of Nebraska-Kearney, the TUTTI Festival, and the SCI Region VI conference. In 2016, his work Prairie Dog Rhapsody received a special mention at the Alfred Schnittke Composer's Forum and Competition and as a result was published by Aldebaran Editions. His music has been broadcast on WPRB Princeton in Marvin Rosen's 25-hour new music marathon, and on Hawaii Public Radio, in the program "Singing and Other Sins." His past commissions of varing sizes include an LDS Barlow Commission with the Missouri Quintet, Mizzou New Music Initiative-funded work for some string players of the St. Louis Symphony, and several others. He has written works for [TriO], The National Flute Orchestra of the UK, Columbia College, and others. His symphonic work From the Book of the Dead was a winner in the Missouri Orchestra Composer's project, which was also funded by the Mizzou New Music Initiative. The recording of his piano work Refugees, recorded by Chad Spears,was also selected for the SCI CD Series vol. 32.

Robert enjoys mentoring all types of people as they learn to play music: it's a way for him to give back to the community and society. His teaching philosophy is to feed his students' enthusiasm about music, no matter whatever level they may be or desire to be. He has previously taught courses as a graduate instructor of record or assistant at the University of Missouri, Florida State University, and as an adjunct at Front Range Community College Westminster. His areas of experience include the oboe, piano, popular music songwriting, music fundamentals, music theory, musicianship, music technology, and composition, all of which he is happy to discuss and incorporate into his lessons.

Robert teaches piano to students of all ages and a wide variety of skill levels, from beginner up through early advanced, as well as oboe to students of all skill levels.
